At a Glance: eBook Design
People really do judge books by their covers—and their overall design. An eBook designer will ensure that both the cover and the text of your eBook looks professional and is formatted for EPUB (the file type used for Android, iOS, and most other devices) and/or MOBI (for use on Amazon devices and distribution via Amazon.com) as required.
eBook designers can work from digital manuscript files such as Word docs or convert the files of print books into eBook formats. They can also convert an EPUB file to MOBI or vice versa. Using their typography, page layout, and technology skills, the eBook designers on Upwork ensure that your book is formatted properly for fluid, error-free reading on multiple devices. They can perform quality assurance to eliminate awkward line breaks, font inconsistencies, and other coding-related issues that can result from converting files to a different format. If you want covers designed for your eBook, they’ll consult with you regarding the style and imagery you have in mind before producing mockups for your approval. Many designers will upload the eBooks to your desired platforms, such as Amazon KDP, Smashwords, and Kobo.
